    Store in a cool, dark place for 7-10 days (more in winter, less in summer). Do Not Disturb.

    After 5 days, give it a taste, if it’s too sweet, keep brewing to suit your taste. After 10 days remove tea towel and pour the liquid “Kombucha" into glass bottles with an airtight lid. Store in the fridge and drink chilled. For a ‘stronger’ Kombucha and a bit of fizz, leave these bottles out on the bench for a double ferment.

    For continuous brewing, leave the scoby along with 1 cup of the kombucha in its glass jar. Make the tea and sugar mix in another jar . Once cool, pour it into the jar with the scoby. Change up the tea flavour for different varieties.
